OneUp Switch 1
Fast Changes on the Rings

OneUp Components Launch the Switch

Date Mar 8, 2017

OneUp Components is well known for their aftermarket chainrings, cassette expanders, and other drivetrain add-ons. Now, they've launched a new quick-change system for chain rings called Switch. Designed to make swaps simple, it means riders and mechanics will be able to change out rings with just a 4mm allen key, and not have to keep track of proprietary tools. Get all the info after the break.

A quick-change direct mount chainring system from OneUp Components.

Switch was developed to reduce the cost of replacement chainrings, increase compatibility with new offsets and to make the process of changing a chainring much faster and simpler. Switch also makes it easier for local bike shops to cover the ever-growing number of chainring standards, without a huge investment in inventory.

OneUp Switch 1
Rings can be replaced in less than a minute with only a 4mm allen key, without removing your crank. Simply loosen the bolts 2 turns, unlock the ring by rotating it by 20 degrees and pull it over and off your crank. Reverse these steps to install your new ring. If you plan to ride a trail that you know is steeper than your local trails, you can switch to a smaller ring in the parking lot, in less time than it takes your friend to put on his riding shoes!

A Switch chainring is the same price as our existing direct mount chainrings, but the ring and carrier can be replaced individually at a fraction of the cost.

ALL the Major Mounting Standard, Sizes and Offsets in both Round and Oval 

(130 Direct Mount Ring Combinations)
5 Direct Mount Standards (SRAM, Race Face, Cannondale, E13 and Hope) 
5 Ring Sizes (28-36T) 
2 Profiles (Round and Oval) 
3 Offsets (Regular, Boost and Super Boost) 

OneUp Switch 2

Switch math: 5 direct mount standards x 5 ring sizes x 2 ring profiles x 3 offsets = 130 Ring configurations.

EWS Proven 

Every EWS World Champion in the last 3 years has pedalled their way to series victory on a OneUp narrow wide chainring.

One Tool 

Many of the tools required to remove some cranks aren't part of a basic home tool kit and are definitely not on your multitool. Cannondale, E13 and Hope cranksets all require proprietary tools to replace their chainrings. Swap a Switch chainring with just a 4mm allen key

Not Another Standard

The two-piece system is the most efficient way to handle the expanding number of chainring standards. It is not a new standard in itself. With quick-change rings and a cheaper replacement cost, Switch has some real benefits over a one-piece chainring. At the same price as our old design, what's not to like?

Innovative I guess, but it takes all of five minutes to swap a ring on either my Race Face or SRAM direct mount setups. Seems like a solution looking for a problem.
